“Look me in the eye and just say the word, ‘Khaleesi.'”
“Game of Thrones” cast members sat down with Variety to recount their best fan encounters, from impromptu BTS concerts to full-on marriage proposals.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, revealed one time a fan in a costume had him propose to his girlfriend… on his behalf.
The “Game of Thrones” matchmaking doesn’t stop there. John Bradley, the beloved and bookish Sam Tarly, explained how his character arc helped a man build up the courage to ask a woman he was in love with out. “He always thought he’d be rejected, but there’s something about the bravery of Sam that encouraged him to do it, kind of egged him on,” said Bradley. “He asked her out and she said yes. She had been in love with him all that time as well, but she didn’t want to tell him because of the same reasons. So they ended up together.”
Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark, talked about how a girl from Los Angeles came all the way to England with her mom to see her in a play. After the show, the duo went to see Korean pop group BTS. Williams responded, “I really want to watch that movie and none of my friends like K-Pop, so absolutely. So I went with her and her mom. It was really really lovely.”
The final season of “Game of Thrones” premieres April 14 on HBO.
